a well condensed version (for the Twitter generation),
addressing the challenges young investors face (quote below, good advice for all ages),
written by an "expert" (what do parents know?).
Hurdle 1: Even if you can invest like Warren Buffett, if you can't save, you'll die poor.
Hurdle 2: Finance isn't rocket science, but you'd better understand it clearly.
Hurdle 3: Those who ignore financial history are condemned to repeat it.
Hurdle 4: We have met the enemy and he is us.
Hurdle 5: The financial services industry wants to make you poor and stupid.
I thought it was well worth $0.99, though I am an unabashed fan of Dr B (my AA is still based on 'The Four Pillars...')
Although, you won’t find much in this book, there are more materials suggested by author that need to be read in order to learn more. Author didn’t suggest to read any of his other books, and I think he has like ten (10) more of them.
I won’t tell you to buy it, or not to, it’s all up to you. I think that paying $0.99 for this book is worth to get some tips and suggestion what to read next.

This book is a quick, interesting read. It provides a brief insight into the variety of pitfalls and challenges that a young investor will face during his/her life. It also helps the reader develop a plan. The assigned "homework" texts are varied and extremely well chosen. Bernstein mentions early in the book that it will take at least three months to perhaps a year for the reader to complete all of the assigned books. That sounds like a long time, but it is many, many years less than what I spent working my way through frequently bad financial advice and making mistakes.
I will be purchasing this book for my two millennial grandkids this week.
This is a must for personal investment finance for retirees and those working toward a healthy retirement.
That being said, if you do know nothing, have no intention of doing any research on the internet by yourself,and can't afford any advice other then this $5 book then it is not bad.
